Scott Storch to Cops:

I WAS ROBBED

Gunmen Threatened To Kill Me

EXCLUSIVE

0820_scott_storch_gettyHip hop producer Scott Storch -- who's worked with everyone from Dr. Dre to 50 Cent, Snoop and P!nk -- claims he was robbed outside of a NY hotel today ... and the gunmen threatened to kill him in the street.

TMZ has learned ... 39-year-old Storch just filed a police report in NYC, claiming he was leaving the New York Palace hotel on Madison Ave. when he was approached by two men with guns while he was inside a waiting SUV who said, "Give us all your jewelry and cash or you're dead."

Law enforcement sources tell us Storch handed over a briefcase which contained $4k to $5k in cash ... along with several pieces of jewelry, worth around $100,000.

The men also demanded the driver of the SUV hand over the keys to the ride so they couldn't drive away ... and the driver complied.

Eventually, we're told the bad guys ran off without opening fire. Storch says he tried to chase after the guys to see where they were headed, but they got away.

Storch -- who's in town for the MTV VMAs -- went to a nearby police station and filed a report.

If you are wearing Elton John style glasses you look like an easy target and douchey.

Isn't he a drug dealer or at best a massive addict? What does he expect?

The next time he gets a brain fart and decides to carry thousands $$$ in cash, maybe he will think of this little reminder his azz almost ended up intimate with a bullet.

There's WAY MORE to this story than he is letting on. That area? It's pretty "quiet" by NY standards, it's just a short walk east from 5th Ave, where all the action and tourists are. That area is not typically a hot-bed for crime, especially of this caliber. Truth be told, it's mostly businesses in that area. Lots of real money? Yes, but not the kind of place thugs usually go looking to rob someone for some quick, easy $$$...just sayin'.
